Assessing Mental Health Across Cultures

Lena Andary,

Assessing Mental Health Across Cultures
 
 
We live in a multicultural society, yet how well do we understand the differences that exist across cultures and how they may impact on mental health and mental health assessment?
Assessing Mental  Health Across Cultures provides a framework for mental health professionals and students to obtain an in-depth understanding of a client whose  cultural background is different to their own. The book uses a combination of theoretical discussion and case examples set in the context of Australia’s multicultural society.
 
Chapter titles include:
Issues and Dilemmas in Diagnosis Across Cultures
Cultural Values, the Sense of Self and Psychiatric Assessment
Expression and Communication of Distress Across Cultures
Issues in Translating Mental Health Terms Across Cultures
Crosscultural Beliefs about Illness
Negotiating Explanatory Models
